I'm the opposite - I'm a deeply entrenched, walled-in, moat-around-the-collection owner. I don't sell my dolls. I've come close - I've actually had a few of my dolls listed for sale on a local site, but when they didn't sale quickly I thought that was the perfect excuse to take them off and keep them... (Also, they got new face-ups and clothes to help sell them, and I realised that I loved their new look. LOL!!) I find there's just as much criticism of owners who don't swap out and end up with collections of 20 or more dolls. Like you can't love so many of them, you don't pay enough attention to them, etc. Not to mention the fact that mega-collectors of course spend money on their collection that does *not* come from selling other dolls. The bottom line is, that everyone has their own reasons for collecting, their own way of collecting, playing, creating, etc. I really don't feel qualified to judge people solely based on the way they treat their dolls.
